Hes got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, an aristocratic beauty whos way out of his league. If he cant have Marissa, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers....Fate curses him with the very thing he wants.

I don‘t know why so many reviewers call Butch and Marissa “whiny” in this book. Clearly those are people who have never been abused, shunned, relegated to the sidelines in their lives. Both Butch and Marissa had a lot to work through from their pasts before they could come together in the end. This was another great Black Dagger Brotherhood story. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

GingerAntics I love Butch after reading this, but at the same time, I think Wrath has officially become my favourite brother. It doesn‘t hurt that he‘s also the most laidback, compassionate king. The way he cares for John is just perfection in storytelling. #jrward #BlackDaggerBrotherhood #LoverRevealed (edited) 9mo
Branwen I love this series so much! 9mo
GingerAntics @Branwen a friend introduced me to this series back in 2009 just before I broke up with my ex. The series only had 6 books at the time. I don‘t know what happened, but I ended up sort of losing track of the series. I start grad school and everything turned ugly. I lost my whole library including these books. Then a few weeks ago a whole other friend texted me and told me I needed to check out this series. Now I‘m falling in love with it all over. 9mo

Branwen @GingerAntics First off, I am so so sorry you lost your whole library. I know the pain of what that is like, and I feel for you, friend. I am really happy for you however that you are rediscovering your love for this series! That has got to be not only enjoyable, but therapeutic as well! 💕📚 9mo
GingerAntics @Branwen with the crazy beginning to this year I‘ve had, it‘s therapeutic on SOOO many levels. The audiobooks are great. I highly recommend them, even if you already know the books. The same guy seems to narrated them all, so there is a beautiful continuity to listening to them. 9mo
GingerAntics @Branwen I‘m slowly rebuilding my personal library, but it makes me so nervous I swear I have library PTSD. 9mo
Branwen @GingerAntics I will have to try out the audiobooks! 😃💕📚 And yes, I know exactly what you mean about library PTSD. Once I moved out here to Michigan 4 years ago, I started rebuilding my library- and now it's finally better than it was before. But I definitely have a lot of weird attachment issues with my books now that I never had before. 9mo
GingerAntics @Branwen oh yeah. I had just started to rebuild (maybe had 50 books or so) and lost those… so that was hard. Especially since I had just gotten a huge stack of books from my uncle‘s library after he died. I think those were the hardest books to lose at that time. 9mo

I‘m so excited to reread Butch‘s story. This is another one I vividly remember parts of. I think I mostly remember what is quite possibly the most dramatic point of the story, but feeling like I remember a lot of the story (like the last time) generally means I‘m going to be surprised a lot.

Every time I finish a book about one of the brotherhood I like his story best 🤣 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

GingerAntics I have that same problem. 😂🤣😂 She does such a great job and bringing that brother to life, you can‘t help love him. 💙💙💙 9mo

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I liked Butch‘s journey from book one until now with this book. I even liked Marissa‘s growth throughout this book. I did find both characters to be whiny and indecisive a lot throughout this book. There was a lot of misunderstandings and pettiness between the characters. These things made this book one of the books I didn‘t really like out of this series.

I'm going to have I start giving these books four stars from now on they are good but the sequence of events in each book is becoming predictable and there is an over the use of the same phrases that I feel is not needed in the storylines are great and I am enjoying reading about certain characters but the reasons for the 4 stars stated above remain the same.

I didn't like this one as much as the first three. Butch's whiny, macho shit gets on my nerves and he and Marissa are all drama disaster. It made me wonder why I'm reading this series. It's really different from my norm.

The fourth book in the BDB series. I thoroughly enjoyed Butch‘s story! He is so dang sweet! I found Marissa to be a bit prissy and unsupportive of Butch at times, but given her background I can understand why. Butch and Vishous have such a tight-knit friendship and I‘m so glad this book leads into V‘s story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love when I get the chance to work from home. Lunch time reading always helps the day go a bit smoother. Also, does anyone else get a little anxious when peeling a sticker off their books? 😅 #currentlyreading #blackdaggerbrotherhood

Louise Yes re: sticker-peeling anxiety! Some stickers are easy to peel off, but others. . . 😳😤🙁😫! 4y
AmandaEve @Louise right! I‘m always afraid I‘ll rip the cover 😖😢 4y

The 4th book in this amazing series. This book focuses on Butch the human in this series. I love this series the world and lore building that Ward has done is amazing

The first time I read the series, this book was my least favorite. It seems to be true this time around as well. I wasn‘t as invested in Marissa and Butch as I was the other couples in the series. I feel like Butch‘s story needed more, instead of just a few sentences at the end explaining his childhood. Worth the read, though.

#splashintosummerreads day 26: I can't hear the word #bromance with out thinking about The Blackdagger Brotherhood. All the brothers are tight but Butch and V's relationship is on a whole other level of bromance👌😁

This was one of the very last BDB books I read. The first 2 or 3 were fantastic, then they got a bit sketchy here and there, then they became highly inconsistent in both writing and content. This particular book did shine, as I really enjoyed the character of Butch and wanted to know more about him. It was wonderfully written, but I think this is a case where the author should have ended on a high note.

AngelicRanger Another series i keep meaning to get back in to! So many books... 6y
Bookwitchery I've heard the most recent couple have been closer to what the earlier ones were. They got so bad I'm a bit wary though. 6y
Bookwitchery Have you tried Larissa Ione? Her books are fantastic. 6y

Although the story was good it might be my last Black Dagger Brotherhood book. They pretty much follow the same story line and I'm getting tired of the repetitiveness.

TheLibrarian @Owlizabeth - They aren't terrible but after the fourth one I need a bit of a break for a while. 6y
